Miracle Theatre goes into production on Tin – The Movie

4th May 2012

Miracle Theatre is producing a feature film based on its recent sell-out show Tin, made in collaboration with English Touring Opera.

Filmmaker and writer Bill Scott (Dressing Granite, Cheap Rate Gravity) will transport Tin from the stage to the big screen. The lost world of 19th century Cornish tin mining will be re-animated using a mix of ‘low-tech’ model-making and hi-tech special effects to give the film a uniquely stylized feel.

“This film has been in development for about 15 years – quite long enough for any project!” said Bill. “The script has been through several drafts, rehearsed readings and live performances at venues across Cornwall. Now we have assembled a wonderful cast and highly skilled local crew to tell the film version of this very Cornish story that I’m sure will have huge international appeal.”

The film will feature the original cast of the theatre production, which includes opera icon Ben Luxon. They will be joined by other actors, including Jenny Agutter (The Railway Children, Call the Midwife, Outside Bet) and Dudley Sutton (Lovejoy, Weekend Retreat) who will play Abraham Bennett, one of the devious bankers.

Miracle Theatre is looking for additional support and sponsors to fund the creation of the models and the post-production process. You can help make this happen and be part of the action by becoming a Tin Adventurer. This support will be the final piece in the puzzle for the Tin project and will help Miracle bring the film to a screen near you by spring 2013!
